Sony and Intergraph…hmmm

Fantom Planet came across an interesting bit of information on the Intergraph site. Sony has decided to provide Intergraph $15 million for worldwide access to their patent portfolio, but it isn’t just one way, Intergraph will have access to select Sony patents…though they will still have to pay royalties. Fantom Planet was talking PS3, I am throwing down the gauntlet and saying PSP since Intergraph’s mobile LBS solutions are somewhat overlooked in my perspective (admittedly not a very broad perspective though) and there is talk about PSP compatible GPS units.

Keep in mind that the origin of this agreement is Sony Japan and you toss in some really cool toys that may never make it state-side…I really need to learn to read Kanji 🙂
